Ninon, began her artistry with ceramic at the “ College du Vieux Montreal”.

She jumped into the world of circus with the “National Circus School” in Montreal. Her first professional performance was with “Cirque du Soleil”. She built up her own circus in Vancouver with Peter Boulanger, called “The Underground Circus”.  In addition to directing and overseeing circus training, Ninon also heads up the concepts and fabrication of the elaborate costuming and textiles seen in The Underground Circus shows. 

After a knee injury doing stunts in the movie industry, she stumbled head first in the fashion industry.  She earned a degree in fashion design at Blanche McDonald and an award for fabric innovation.

Ninon is currently expanding her creative expressions by painting the images that she sees in her morning dreams.
